UPFRONT Penny in the pig

If we’re to get real about being an ownership society, we need to set up savings schemes for all New Zealanders. That’s the gist of the fourth and final paper from the New Zealand Institute.

Full copies of the report “Opportunity for lifetime: creating an ownership society in New Zealand” can be downloaded from www.nzinstitute.org/index.php/ownershipsociety/papers
